Houseplants Poisonous To Your Cats

There are many plants you may bring into your home without realising that they are poisonous to cats. Not all of them will prove fatal if eaten or chewed, but some most definitely can kill your much loved cat. Never assume a cat will instinctively not try to eat a poisonous plant, as all too often cats end up being rushed into the vets suffering from poisoning as a result of chewing on or eating a number of different houseplants.
